A Classic Hotel Central to Historic Istanbul

The Hotel Uyan first opened it's doors in 1928, as a house in the center of Istanbul's busy Historic District. Today, the house remains open and welcome to visitors from around the world. Guests who want to travel back in time and experience Istanbul like a local should start at this historic boutique hotel, offering a completely immersive experience.

Classic Rooms with Futuristic Amenities

The 27 rooms at the classic Hoyel Uyan, which are spread over four floors, reflect the classic opulence of the 1930's in Eastern Europe. Though the rooms are smaller because of the historic stature of the building, each room feels bigger thanks to creative decorating and the use of color and light. Every room features a number of modern amenities to make travelers feel at home, including a mini bar and wireless internet access. 

If space and luxury matter, consider upgrading to a deluxe room. Located on the top floors of the hotel, deluxe rooms come with a number of technological upgrades without losing the historic charm. Dedicated outlets for laptop computers and Jacuzzi tubs are ready and waiting for guests, while retaining the delightfully classic colors and decor. No matter your wants, the Hotel Uyan has a room to fit your fancy. 

Walking Distance of Istanbul's Historic District

Those who want to surround themselves in Istanbul's Historic District have come to the right place. The Hoyel Uyan stands directly behind the world-famous Blue Mosque and Ayasofia - and many guests enjoy the complimentary breakfast looking over the historic site. A variety of tourist attractions all sit within 300 feet of the front door of the hotel, including the Topkapi Palace, the Hagia Sophia, the Basilica Cistern, and access to the Marmara Sea. 

Compared to other hotels in the area, there are fewer attractions at the Hotel Uyan. While the hotel offers a lounge and deli, travelers staying at this classic hotel are best served enjoying the local restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. And those who want to get creative with their culinary experience should take the short ride to the Spice Bazaar, offering an authentic view into Turkish cuisine. 

The Bottom Line

Travelers who want to surround themselves with breathtaking views and historic Turkish culture are best served by staying at the Hotel Uyan. Standing for over 80 years, visitors will leave Istanbul with a truly unique experience.
